Golf in Schools

Golf in Schools logoThink that golf can only be played in the summer? Wrong! With the help of Golf Canada, students all across Canada continue to be introduced to the game of golf through their school’s Physical Education program. Each registered school is provided with an indoor, safety-approved set of equipment given to each school that comes in an easy-to-store carry bag.

The initial element of the program is focused on assisting Canadian school teachers (specialists and non-specialists) with and without a background in golf, to plan and deliver quality learning experiences using golf as the vehicle. Developed by the Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada) in partnership with Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada, the learning resource was designed to meet the learning outcomes of school curriculums across Canada.

Life Skills
